Ten Things of Thankful: Very Short, Hopefully Sweet Edition

I'm writing this from a hotel in St. George, Utah.  Tomorrow I arrive in Provo for Education Week at Brigham Young University. 
I'm thankful for:
1.  Oldest son--he is great about keeping in touch.
2.  Oldest daughter--she is always up for a Disneyland trip.

3.  Middle daughter--she's grown up so much being a mom.
4.  Youngest son--I've loved having him home this summer.

5.  Youngest daughter--my travel companion this week for BYU Education Week.
6.  Drexel--goofy dog amuses me.

7.  Working transportation.
8.  Working a/c and CD player in #7.
9.  A pillow that is calling my name.
10.  John--master of foam aviator hats, holder-downer of the fort, and supporter of my travels.

(In case you would like to make your own aviator hat, he used the pattern mentioned in the following video.)

  1. I thought about you today. Praying for safe travels. Yes, AC traveling where you were would have been a necessity, so I'm glad it was working! I love John's hat!

  5. Sweet hat! I recently put our crates away to free up floor space, but the dogs did enjoy having their own little corner when they were out. Once Louie was followed in by a cat we used to have. The cat was notorious for his somewhat cranky disposition. Poor Louie was afraid to pass the cat to come out and had to cry until I came and shooed the cat away.

  8. Your 7 8 and 9 - absolutely!
    Short and sweet is awesome. And I have to say that you could be your son's sister - you do NOT look old enough to have a son that age. :)

  9. It's sweet how you worked all your children into your TToT.
    :-)
    Sounds like a lot of exciting traveling you've been doing.
    I love when a pillow calls your name at the end of a day. Love the photo descriptions too by the way. Thanks.

  12. A very lovely list indeed. Love goofy dogs and John's hat. It reminds me of Carl in "Up"....
    Is this a costume coming "up"? (Great movie, sadest first 10 minutes / love story)
    Have a great week in Utah. (send some sun over here, would you?!)
